Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch Active 4 inch closer to launch


Last updated: June 8th, 2021 at 09:40 UTC+02:00

Samsung is expected to announce three new smartphones and two new smartwatches in the second half of this year. The company has announced that it will switch from Tizen OS to a brand new version of Google’s Wear OS with its next smartwatches. Now, those two smartwatches—Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4— have inched closer to their launch and received a necessary certification.

The Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch Active 4 received China’s CCC certification yesterday. Two variants of each of those smartwatches passed through the certification process. The SM-R860 (39mm) and the SM-R870 (43mm) are the variants of the Galaxy Watch Active 4, while the SM-R880 (41mm) and the SM-R890 (45mm) are the variants of the Galaxy Watch 4. Both smartwatches will come bundled with 5W wireless chargers, but there won’t be a charging adapter inside the box.

It was revealed yesterday that the 41mm version of the Galaxy Watch 4 will be powered by a 247mAh battery, similar to the Galaxy Watch 3. The smartwatch should be capable of lasting a couple of days on a single charge, similar to existing Galaxy Watch devices. The upcoming smartwatches are expected to feature circular Super AMOLED displays, IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, an accelerometer, a barometer, a gyro, GPS, a heart rate monitor, SpO2 measurement, and sleep tracking.

In terms of hardware specs, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch Active 4 will feature a 5nm Exynos processor. This chipset should provide a much-needed boost in speed, performance, and power efficiency. They also feature slimmer bezels and flat glass protection. The smartwatches are expected to be announced alongside the Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in August 2021.
